“One Day” these two words have now been greatly associated with the novel(by David Nicholls) and subsequently the adaptation into the film. 

This post is not actually based heavily on the novel/film. But more on the concepts that were raised.

In the novel/film, it follows the life of two young adults who had a passionate night during their final year of uni and stayed in touch. But their paths divert in different directions. We are taken on many life journeys whereby we revisit them every year on 15th July for 20 years. We get shown how they develop into adults, the up’s and down of life, love, fate, friendship, career, ambition, family, the often cruel reality of life many strong topics…

In life we also think of “one day” in terms of hope and chance:

one day

-things will get better…

-I will find….

-this will happen…

-I will find time to do…

Yet we forget that “one day” may not come.

One thing, one encounter, one person, one mistake, one action
can change everything, could change your whole life.

Through the film we see the two main characters live their life. But it’s like fate and destiny alway’s knew that they ought to be together, but eventually apart. In life we wonder if there is only one person for us. Or if one day everything will get better, or make sense. But the thing is what if written in the stars, it’s already set in stone? That one day may come or it may not.

The truth is “one day” is so vague, so distant that it lack’s “realness”

From looking into the relationship in “one day” we see things that they did not see at the time. That’s why sometimes it is said the outsider’s view is clearer. You see that they were always supposed to be together, yet they could not see that themselves. Which is why I suggest from time to time, take a step back and look into your own life, be a stranger looking into your own life. Ask yourself:

“does this seem right?”

“is this the right way?”

“if I only had one more day would I be doing this?”

Trust me you will be amazed at how the different perceptive can be refreshing.

Remember there may never be that “one day” – life has no guarantee
